Director Statement

I met the Clark family at an Italian Festival in Northeast Pennsylvania where they told me the story of their husky, Ninja. As a dog-person myself, I was compassionate and wanted to help them out someway, somehow. That's when I offered to volunteer my time to sit down and interview them to get their story out there.
